I bet the breeder of the pair of Geese that went for $3300 at the Sydney Royal auction wished he had got aboard and put permanent rings on them. They would have made $6600!

I can't believe that price OMFG some people have no idea what something is worth the seller must still celebrating and counting his win fall. I may put a cross bred chinese in next time that should fetch $3000

Happy to annotate

Its not recognized as a colour in that breed anywhere (cannot be show in class - nor should it be allowed) and its not in the APS1 or 2 also I am not sure it even pure?

Sorry the breed is "Toulbden" as I nicked named them but just a cross breed and in the development stage still from what I have read and heard (still trowing grey feathers) maybe not too bad when and if they are finished and increase in size

I thought that the pair of geese where Michael Peel's White Toulouse geese.
As far as I know he is trying to get them to become part of the standard, which would mean that they breed true.

Well when the next APS edition comes out in 20 years they may be ready but not as they are.
